Ode To Small Shops #1: From Garage to Patio to Deck, My Small Shop Finally Has A Home

2079 days ago by slooper | 4 comments »

My first shop was what I could squeeze into a one car garage, leaving enough room for the car of course, and a workbench in my crowded basement. My second “shop”, if one could call it that, was a combination of a 3’x6’ closet off the patio of my 1st floor apartment, the 6’x10’ patio with picnic table, and the back of a utility trailer. If I caught you scratching your head, let me explain. My big tools; table saw, jointer and planer; were in a storage she...

Outside of Shop Complete (with a temporary change)

2080 days ago by FJPetruso | 9 comments »

Finally… An Update! I’m running out of warm weather so as you can see… I paid a bit extra to have the siding put on the front of the workshop, where the bricks will go, because I want to get the final inspection done as quickly as possible. I’ll put the brick veneer on this spring. There are new shutters & gutters & a light over the front window. On the rear of the shop, the landing by the doors has been poured, there’s a light over the doors & the outside recepticle is in...

I’m not dropping names here. I wa...

Grand Daughters Crib #9: Addison is here!! Working my tail oof to finish this crib!!

2080 days ago by Les Hastings | 10 comments »

Addison rose was born Thurday the 6th of November at 2:19 am. Both are doing just fine. Addison weighed in at a whopping 7lbs. 15 oz. and stands 21” tall. I’m working hard to get this crib finished up and into finish. I think you guys are right, my timing is off a little or is it? This way I’ll have to go back down when the crib is done and I’ll get to see Addison again. Here’s a picture of Addison at about 12 hours old. Click on the picture to see it full v...

So now a small niece is in the picture. This is what I’m making her for Christmas. It looks like a real fun project. They have a little weiner dog so hopefully she’ll like this. I didn’t get much done today – but i...

Walnut Tallcase Clock #8: Walnut Tallcase Clock

2080 days ago by Charles Mullins | 5 comments »

Well Folks, I’m going to make this the final posting on this project. It has some minor things to be done but I’ll just call it complete. If you are wondering what has to be done is for me to practice my calligraphy writing for a few days then sign the clock face, add a border under the arch and seal it. Where it’s setting now is only temporary so I’ll not bother leveling it precisely, it’s leaning forward some now. My wife has done a good job painti...
